May is also the month to salute mothers. As we mothers all know, Mother's Day is every day of the year - one never stops being a mommy. The changing joys are what make it worthwhile: sleeping through the night, first day of school, college graduation, first job - all road marks that a mother treasures. Although the definition of mother is being constantly stretched - "birth" vs. "egg donor" vs. "parental" - acknowledgment to our X gene donors is in order, and to those (if not of the former group) who are related to us by love and devotion.
